Collection of songs that I thought went along with the book.

  • Small Bump by Ed Sheeran
    This song reminded me of Pearl's birth/toddler years.
  • Just One Yesterday by Fall Out Boy feat. Foxes
    This song made me think of the chapter when Hester didn't want to live the life she is living right now and would rather go back in time.
  • Brave Honest Beautiful by Fifth Harmony
    This reminds me of the scene where all the other kids are picking on Pearl and Hester reassured her that she isn't wicked or demonic.
  • Ink by Coldplay
    This song reminds me of Reverend Dimmesdale finally accepting that he still loves Hester and Pearl
  • Risk It All by The Vamps
    This song reminded me of when Reverend Dimmesdale stood on the scaffold with Hester and Pearl and ricked his whole reputation by doing so.
  • King of Anything by Sara Bareilles
    This is more of a girl power anthem but it reminded me of when Hester and Pearl are leaving their home and going onto the ship to go to England.
  • Dog Days Are Over (lyrics) by Florence and the Machine
    I sort of think this song was playing in Hester's mind as she went on the boat with Reverend Dimmesdale and left her old town.
